No pics or stories. Once a year I drive all the way down to Wharton to ride. Wednesday was my annual trip. I didn't get half way through the big loop before having to turn around due to water. I won't be trekking down there again anytime soon.
Interesting ride today on the usually not much happening northport loop. First, for the avid followers of the Neal and Bob hijinks (@stb222, @RobW and @thegock), I ran into Bob about 9 miles into my ride - he was just finishing up. Said his legs were toast from yesterday's Bataan deathmarch on the soft rocks - mine weren't so fresh either. Bob says hi!
Anywho, at mile 11, a bright blue 67/68 mustang passes me. At mile 17 on Toledo Blade heading north, he passes me again, then turns ahead. I follow him - it's a dead end road - he was checking his motor temp. Ended up talking with the guy for 15 minutes (well he did most of the talking - car guys love to talk about their cars). He just finished restoring it - stock body with a Shelby hood, different mirrors, rebuilt 302, 4 sp toploader replaced the original auto. Sounded great - he did a nice peel out for me.
one of the fair weather cyclists at work wanted to ride today so i linked up with him and for someone who (supposedly) hasnt been doing anything bike related all winter i wanna know what he did with my legs after he ripped them off . . . . im going to go sleep now.
Always peeps asking me how are conditions which kind cheeses me off go ride and find out mfers fair weather riders meh, but still I feel obligated so I ride the Singletrack that I did hit is sketchy and all connexting roads and quad paths are either covered in ice or peanut butter it's tough out there I'll be on the road tomorrow
